Compassion Fatigue has been the subject of considerable concern in the social work profession. The provision of service to people who are experiencing a highly stressful situation can take a significant emotional toll on those providing assistance. However, few experiences are more stress-invoking that the loss of a child. In this episode, Dr. Joanne Cacciatore and Kara Thieleman discuss their research with the professionals and volunteers that provide service to parents who have experienced a child's death.
